If you give a very low value to your property then your potential profit will be lost. Commercial property is evaluated through commercial appraisal.
Appraising commercial property market value can be done In many ways for a piece of property. Many owners will usually pay one or two appraisers and compare each individual’s evaluation. Some professional appraisers just use an opinion of the value of property. An appraisal of a land occurs because no two properties are identical and the value of all of them differs based on location. This type of opinion appraisal does not use any pricing mechanism so it is important that to properly appraise real estate, an expert appraisal should be done.
Appraisals should be performed by a licensed appraiser. Many times the appraiser bases his opinion on market assessment and the highest and best use of real property. When an appraisal is reported it is on a standardized report form. The appraiser will submit a narrative report if the piece of property is complex with many unusual characteristics.
The cost approach, sales comparison, and the salary-based approach, are three methods for assessing property. The cost approach suggests that the value of the property is equal to adding up the value of the land minus any needed improvements. This appraisal method is used for new structures and not so much on older structures. The sales comparison approach evaluates the price per unit area of land similar to other appraisal amounts of similar properties in the marketplace. Among the three approaches, this is the most objective. Salary-based approach is used to value commercial and investment properties as it evaluates an income stream.
The techniques vary greatly with each other, and because of this the technique used will depend on what type of asset you have. The income approach is used to appraise investment properties like skyscrapers, but the sales comparison approach can be used to appraise retail of office buildings. Sales comparison is also used for appraising apartment buildings. Before you sell your property, make sure you get an expert appraisal for it.
